USS Yorktown (NCC-82002)
“Mystery creates wonder and wonder is the basis of man’s desire to understand.”
—Neil Armstrong – Ship’s Dedication Quote
The USS Yorktown is a Century-class starship that currently serves as the flagship of the Fourth Fleet attached to Task Force 17. The Yorktown is the fourth Federation starship to bear the name and follows a legacy of proven ships of exploration. The name Yorktown has often found its name into the halls of Starfleet Command as a proven name of science, and a stalwart ship in times of defense of the Federation. The name “Yorktown” goes back as far as the founding of the Federation and, in fact, Earth Starfleet.
